The extracellular matrix (ECM) surrounding blood and lymphatic vessels provides a physical support for the vessels and serves as a reservoir for chemotactic and growth factors. It is composed of fibrous proteins such as Collagens, Fibronectin, and Laminins as well as matricellular molecules such as Fibulins and Matrilins. Increased deposition of matrix components during disease and wound healing can lead to their abnormal accumulation and fibrosis.
